Ja Rule’s journey in life started in the rugged neighborhood of Hollis, Queens. With little opportunities given to him, the aspiring rapper turned entrepreneur has weathered the oft life threatening storm to transform himself from a kid with a dream into the American Dream.
From crashing other rappers’ video shoots with DMX to freestyle battling, serving jail time, to earning multiple platinum plaques, Rule has done it all in the world of hip-hop. But, the now father of 3 is just fully focused on his family values.
Starting on Monday, Oct 26, Ja, his kids, mother — and mother in law — are debuting their new show, Follow The Rules at 10pm ET. For the first time, the star behind Murda Inc’s rise to success is letting the world know exactly how it goes down in his house.
It may be the unexpected for some, but to those that know Jefferey Atkins best, the show is just a glimpse into one of the most loving households in hip-hop.
Watch Ja’s exclusive interview about Follow The Rules, parenting and more below.
